Shoulders to Stand On: The role of men in restoring the woman’s voice By Jeff McQuilkin
My piece is an expanded version of my original post called The Courageous Imagination – A Call to Men
My Abstract: Deep within the heart of a man is the desire to fight for something. Yet also embedded within a man is the destructive bent to rule over the woman. History is littered with the undeniable evidence of oppression towards women. What would happen if men took up the courageous call to address one of the deepest needs of the heart by restoring one of our deepest bents, to literally change the course of history and fight for women.
What People Are Saying
“Taking Fight is an important project that brings together a rich array of diverse voices to discuss the issues facing women in our world today. It is refreshing and challenging to read a book like this that provides strong theological groundings, historical perspectives and examples from today’s world that are both instructive and insightful. I would highly recommend this book.”
Executive Director Mustard Seed Associates
“Wow. I found Taking Flight to be a thoroughly captivating book from the first page. It is thoughtful and provoking, relevant but never reactionary. It is full of Scriptural precedents and historical background while offering prophetic insight as to what’s coming up next. So
many issues of great importance and all of them dealt with fairly and passionately.”
Andrew Jones, The Boaz Project
“Taking Flight lives up to its title! The collaborative nature of this project gives witness to the power and creativity of a Christ-centered community rather than futile discursive matches. When grounded in Christ, it is possible to soar in hope that men and women serving together can be reconciling forces in a world desperately needing our full attention and contributions. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it!
